5:20 am
in san francisco. more of that on the way. exploratorium camera, can you make out a. >> bit of the low cloudiness? it is cooler up in the north bay. in fact, everywhere around the bay two to three degrees cooler with more 50s coming into play right now in napa and novato. 63 by the delta. the wind up to 24 miles an hour and low 60s for concord and livermore. sfo this morning, we are looking with no problems here. good visibility. a little bit of coastal cloudiness early and warm to hot again today. above average temperatures remain for labor day. in fact, numbers should be well into the 90s in our inland valleys. but that sea breeze kicks up today and tomorrow. so even though we have a strong north-south gradient today, high pressure is beginning to build once again off the coast. that allows for a little bit of a breeze throughout the day today. so more summer warmth with temperatures once again ranging from the mid-70s here in milbrae today. so very nice day with just a few clouds to start out early.
5:21 am
but by about 10:00 it will be sunny and into the mid-70s. you head up north of the golden gate, sausalito, and just about the same weather with temperatures in the mid-70s by the middle of the afternoon. plenty of sunshine. the breeze kicks up by the afternoon, as well, here. we will look for numbers today just about the same as they were yesterday with mid-80s in san jose. low 90s return for morgan hill and gilroy. yesterday was 84 in santa cruz. today upper 70s. on the peninsula, mid-70s for san mateo with low 60s palo alto. mid-80s redwood city. upper 60s, perhaps a few 70s by ocean beach. san francisco low 70s. a bit breezy in the afternoon and in the north bay numbers climbing through the 80s into the low 90 he is's. this is where you felt the heat yesterday. 91 napa. throughout the afternoon, still the 70s but upper 70s for san leandro. union city checks in about 79.

5:23 am
to save money and water. >> the first money waister in the laundry room, using too much detergent. detergents are super concentrationed now. when you use too much, you are not just wasting detergent, it can tryinger your washer to do an extra rinse cycle. >> it takes longer to do laundry and it waists water. if you mark your cap yourself, you use exactly the amount you need. >> consumer reports found as much of 90% of energy spent on a wash load is for heating the water. instead choose the cold water cycle. your clothes will come clean and you probably won't see a difference. wash only full loads of laundry. it saves wear and tear on your machine. if you must wash a small load, adjust the load size. and whatever the sides of your load, use the highest spin setting your fabrics allow. >> this reduces the a moisture
5:24 am
in your clothes, then your dryer will have less work to do and save you energy. >> don't dry your clothes using the timed dry setting. chews the auto dry setting on medium and let your drier's moisture sensor decide when the load is dry. fabric softener seats can gum up the sensor making it run longer, so wipe it monthly with rubbing alcohol. lastly, you won't get the cleanest clothes if you stuff everything in at once. it's more efficient to wash similar items together like just jeans or just t-shirts so everything will dry evenly. i'm michael finney, 7 on your side. next, going out of business. why sears is shutting down today and what developers want to do with the landmark bulling in oakland.
